If you have a 25" ilf riser, would you put a straight edge from the edge of the limb pad where the limb rides to the other. Now measure the distance 90° to the straight edge to the deepest part of your grip.

Please post riser ID, grip used, and if grip is low, medium or high.

It would be interesting to know how you shoot the riser. Bare bow, Olympic style, etc.

Thanks

What I am interested in is how the low, medium, high grip changes that distance, if it does.
heres a thought...



here you have a image of a bike. the wheel base is a constant. and while its quite flat the rider will find it VERY easy to be sat between the wheels. this makes the bike stable.



here you can see that the same bike. while going down a steeper hill, now has a shorter area for the rider to balance within. it also means that the rider needs to be further over the saddle maked by the "x" at the top of the picture.



here you will notice this trend has become more pronounced...

so this translates to grip shape too.

if you anchor the back wheel to be the throat of the grip.... and increase the height of the grip then you in effect more the balance point up into the throat of the grip. you also make the balance point more critical.

So when changing grips. you will also have to match how you pressure the grip to how the bow is wanting you too.

hope that helps...

I got it thanks. Hunting range and IBO 3D I like a low grip. For field I score better with a high grip (string walking).

I was trying to figure out why I didn't like the same grip for both?

This is why I am thinking about building a ILF longbow on this riser!!!

Thanks for the input and thanks Rusty for continuing this project!

Have a great day,
Kasey
